Goodby Abbeville

For a full month I was staying at Betty's RV Park in Abbeville. I enjoyed the Cajun cuisine and the adventures on Lake Martin and fishing and crabbing in the Vermilion Bay with Rocky. People and food in Cajun country are so different to the rest of the USA. I will come back.

Betty's RV Park is something special. The park has no amenities whatsoever, the sites are rather small, but you don't need any of these, since Betty, the owner and host makes up for everything. She is the most charming host you could think of. She is a real Cajun, she knows the area, the restaurants and she is a hell of a cook. Of course the number two attraction, right after Betty, is her Happy Hour every day at 4.30, when most RVers meet for chats and drinks and some crawfish festivals, etc.. Thank you Betty for the great time.

Today I left after 11am and drove via New Iberia and Highway 90 in 3.5 hours to New Orleans, where I made camp at Ponchartrain Landings. This is a nice, new RV park surrounded by yacht wharfs and some old run down harbour facilities.
